Young pregnant women, who appear to have fully recovered from an acute injury that reduced their kidney function, have higher rates of significant problems like preeclampsia and low birthweight babies. MCG scientists are working to better...
Starting with early childhood, otherwise healthy Black people show signs of slightly diminished heart muscle strength and a slightly higher blood pressure than their white counterparts, possibly putting them on a course for early development of...
In the face of a multipronged front to drive blood pressure up, including a high-salt diet, females are better able to keep their pressure down by increasing levels of a T cell that selectively dials back inflammation, scientists say.
It’s called icing sugar spleen, when the usually purplish organ looks like it has been dipped in unhealthy white icing, and the surface is bumpy and thick.

Researchers at MCG have some of the first evidence that diastolic heart failure results when there is a “critical deficit” in the ability to appropriately dilate blood vessels, due to the inhibition of a chemical that helps our blood vessels dilate.
Scientists at MCG are looking at how neural activity drives blood flow increases and how important the increases are for the health and proper functioning of neurons. Benefits of better understanding could include better interpreting results of...
